Abstract

Introduction: Dyslipidemia, is one of the major causes of cardiovascular disease in dialysis patients.

Objectives: This investigation sought to assess the association of serum magnesium level and blood lipids profile in patients under peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis.

Patients and Methods: This cross-sectional investigation was conducted on 110 dialysis patients. Serum lipids and magnesium levels were assessed. Data were analyzed using t-test and Pearson’s correlation.

Results: The mean patients’ age was 46.1±14.7 years. In peritoneal dialysis patients, who were not under treatment of antilipid drugs, the correlation of serum magnesium with triglyceride and VLDL was significant (p<0.05), while the association of serum magnesium with total cholesterol and LDL-C was significant, only in subgroup who were under treatment of antilipid drugs (p<0.05). In hemodialysis patients, the correlation of serum magnesium with total cholesterol, triglyceride and VLDL was significant (p<0.05).

Conclusions: This study revealed that serum magnesium had correlation with serum lipids and could influence to atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease in dialysis patients.



Notes

Implication for health policy/practice/research/ medical education

In a study on 110 dialysis patients, we found that serum magnesium levels are associated with lipids profile of patients undergoing dialysis and could contribute to atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease in these patients.
